ASTC Travel Passport Program

Maui Ocean Center is a part of the ASTC Travel Passport Program. With your purchase of an annual aquarium membership you will also gain admission benefits when you visit other participating institutions from May to October. 

Benefits include FREE general admission or 50% off. 

Exclusions may include:

  • Science centers and museums within 90 miles of the member’s home or the institution where they are a member.
  • These benefits DO NOT include free or discounted admission to special exhibits, planetarium, and larger screen theater presentations, nor do they include museum store discounts and other benefits associated with museum membership unless stated otherwise.

Due to COVID-19, some institutions may have altered their operations or be closed, so it’s advised to check their websites before planning a visit. 

Before traveling, follow this checklist:

  • Ensure the science center/museum is not excluded.
  • Review the family admittance policy.
  • Call ahead to confirm Passport Program benefits.
  • Bring proof of residence and your membership card, as some venues may request them for benefits to apply. There’s no universal database for admission staff to reference, and lost cards should be addressed directly with the museum.
